Lady Jackets bounce back with second half flurry
By Carolina Zimbron
The Cedarville women’s soccer team shook the crowd with a victory with a second-half scoring avalanche against Lake Erie on Wednesday night.
The Lady Jackets have played Lake Erie eight times and have won every match. This game was definitely no exception.
Despite the loss they faced last weekend at Northwood, Cedarville managed to deliver a winning score of 4-0 to move to 2-1 in conference matches and 5-2 overall.
Despite scoring multiple times during the ...
‘A Haunting in Venice’ breaths new shocks into a classic genre
By Ben Konuch
“For once in your life, admit you are up against something bigger than you!”
I've been a fan of mysteries for as long as I can remember, as I previously reminisced when I had the opportunity to review Kenneth Branagh's "Death on the Nile" last year. Mystery stories have taken up much of my childhood, so I’m always disappointed that Hollywood doesn’t have the same quantity of classic whodunits as books and television shows.
That's why Kenneth Branagh's ...
‘Ahsoka’ brings back mystical ‘Star Wars’ in an exciting first half
By Ben Konuch
“Anakin never got to finish my training. Before the end of the Clone Wars, I walked away from him - and the Jedi. Just like I walked away from Sabine.”
When conversations around “Star Wars” spring up in my friend group, I’m usually the guy people look at. I’ve loved “Star Wars” since I was a child and I have my older brother to thank for that. Growing up in the Philippines away from libraries or video stores, we would have to buy a season of the animated ...
‘My Big Fat Greek Wedding 3’ is a hilarious family reunion
By Anna Harman
I was so excited when I first saw the trailer for this movie that I put the release date on my calendar immediately. I loved the first two “My Big Fat Greek Wedding” movies, so I knew I had to see this.
It was so cool to see a lot of the original characters come back in this movie, especially Toula (Nia Vardalo), Ian (John Corbett) and Aunt Voula (Andrea Martin). However, we found out right at the start of the movie that Toula’s mom Maria (Lainie Kazan) was ...
Synergy Initiative kicks off with a discourse on culture
By Avonlea Brown
Approximately 120 students sat in BTS 104, friendly conversations and anticipation buzzed around the room as they wondered how the night would go. A table full of fruits and beverages in the back of the room had several visitors, but most of the attention was on the front of the room.
At 6:30 p.m. on September 12th, Associate Professor of Theology Dr. Jeremy Kimble faced the crowd of students and began the first Synergy Initiative event of the 2023 Fall Semester....
Fertile Ground – A Cedarville Alumni Art Exhibition
This past Saturday (9/9/23), the Cedarville University Gallery opened a new exhibit Fertile Ground honoring alumni who laid a foundation for today's art department students.
Fertile Ground comes from the question, “How do we make things grow?” In Matthew 13 it says, good soil allows for deep roots, protection from birds and thorns, and a rich environment for a seed to come alive.
Featuring work from Studio Art Cedarville Alumni, Fertile Ground&n...
‘One Piece’ is shockingly spectacular
By Janie Walenda
When the writers and actors’ strike began in May, I joked with my brother about how we, two people who watch a lot of film and television, will cope. I said that I would likely end up hate-watching old Dracula movies and comparing them to the book. And given his newfound enjoyment of anime, I joked that he would give in and start “One Piece.” I should’ve known better.
“One Piece” is a notoriously inaccessible anime. Thousands of episodes long, ...
Summer Film Recap: Laci Strouse’s summer of inspiring, uplifting and encouraging entertainment
By Laci Strouse
This summer I spent a lot of my time watching movies and TV shows. After everything I saw, “The Little Mermaid,” “Sound of Freedom,” “The Summer I Turned Pretty Season 2” and “Sun Moon” remain my favorites. These movies and series are all special in their own way and made my summer a little brighter.
“The Little Mermaid” was a great family film.
Summer break began with the release of the live-action Little Mermaid in theaters. It did not disappoint ...
Brads’ Breakdown: the Calm Before the Storm
By Alan Brads
Have you ever had a theory that you don’t say out loud because it seems glaringly obvious but no one else seems to have thought of it? It makes you wonder if you’re a genius, going insane, or both. Well here’s mine:
I think it’s possible that the number one reason the NFL is overwhelmingly more popular than college football is not marketing, or parity, or format or even quality of play, it’s that Sunday comes after Saturday.
By the end of Saturday I love ...
Photo Gallery: Cedarville Draws Findlay at Home in Conference Opener
The Cedarville men’s soccer team played the Findlay Oilers, and dueled them to a scoreless draw in their conference opener, moving their record to 3-1-1 on the year.
Despite facing fifteen shots, goalkeeper Jabari Gray earned his fourth clean sheet of the year, and has so far effectively filled the shoes of former standout goalkeeper Jared Zacharias.
Findlay had heavy control of possession, but the Yellow Jacket defense fended them off for 90 minutes to escape with a draw.
